in thread (OT) my first fired experience

I was actually randomly approached by a potential employer half way accross the country- maybe a year ago. Likely offering a pay raise- as well as a more challenging working environment. I looked around- and I thought- I can't be such an a****le to leave like this- and I had my hot shot ivy league gf working a city over. The gf dumped me- the work- well.. the work.

I guess my office and street smarts didn't keep up with my fledgeling unix hacknicity.

Someone should write a good book about a balance between 'keeping the distance' and being a professional. Maybe Duncan gave it a try. I don't know that he talks enough about some of this, though.

Again, thank you for your points. They are of use, and I will think about them.

[ambrus]: No, you're not doing anything wrong. It's just that our automatic spam filters confuse you with the spammers who post advertisments for online shops of counterfeit branded clothing.
[ambrus]: Or unless you left the title field empty or entered a very short title for the node, but then you'd get a message saying that.
[ambrus]: I hope Corion or some other admin is here and can check the logs to see what the problem is.
[mz2255]: I wish I had an online shop but sadly no. The title field definitly wasn't short, had a perl module in the title with 5-6 additional words.
[ambrus]: you can also try to just post again in case it was some intermittent error
